Editorial Reviews

The idiosyncratic and innovative music of Rosanne Cash, daughter of Johnny Cash, made her one of the pre-eminent singer/songwriters of her day. Although Rosanne Cash is often classified as a country artist, her music draws on many genres, including folk, pop, rock and blues. In the 1980s, she had a string of chart-topping singles, which crossed musical genres and landed on both C&W and Top 100 charts, the most commercially successful being her 1981 breakthrough hit "Seven Year Ache", which topped the U.S. country singles charts and reached the Top 30 on the U.S. pop singles charts. Included on The Essential Rosanne Cash are 36 tracks over 2 discs, including 10 #1 US Country singles.
There is a story here on The Essential Rosanne Cash that runs from 1978's "Can I Still Believe In You" to 2009's "Sweet Memories." Within the joints and joists of these songs Cash married, had children, married again, had children again, traveled, lived in five cities on two continents, lost loved ones, got sick and got well again. Many of the selections on this compilation are signposts of sorts for the landmarks of her life, and the personal and musical are essentially interwoven.

As Rosanne Cash related in her recent memoir, 'Composed', her life has been filled with many highs and lows, and Rosanne is a glass half-full kind of girl. From the first track of 'Can I Still Believe In You' to the last track 'Sweet Memories', Rosanne brings us her history. Rosanne comes from a family rich in music from the old folk tunes, cultural and regional tunes, jazz, pop, rock and blues and country. Rosanne Cash is not a one note woman, her lucious voice crosses many genres. Her father, Johnny Cash, gave her a list of songs that she cherishes. It is filled with the tunes that describe our Americana. Rosanne has given us a cross section of some of those tunes, and the songs that she has sung in her albums over the past thirty plus years. Her life is interwoven through out these songs.

Rosanne sings with her father, Johnny Cash, Bobby Bare, Vince Gill, Rodney Crowell, Bruce Springsteen and Chris Thile. Many of my favorites are on this 36 song, two disc marvel. In this 'Essential' CD Rosanne brings us from her early beginnings, 'It Hasn't Happened Yet', to the sad times with one of the most emotional songs, 'September When It Comes' with Johnny Cash, to her record seller, 'Seven Year Ache'. It is difficult to pick a favorite, but 'Sea of Heartbreak' sung with Bruce Springsteen is it for me. You will find many songs that speak to you in this set, and we will all find our favorite voice.

Rosanne Cash brings us her life on a platter of 36 songs. All of them real and all of them a part of her life that brings us the whole truth. This is a comprehensive history of the singing life of Rosanne Cash.

For an artist of her stature, Rosanne Cash has been the subject of surprisingly thin compilation releases. Several 10- and 12-track single disc collections have been issued, but only Raven's imported 21-track Blue Moons and Broken Hearts and to a lesser extent Legacy's earlier Very Best Of really dug beyond the hits. That list is now expanded with this two-disc, thirty-six track collection, featuring a song list picked and programmed by the artist herself. The set opens with "Can I Still Believe in You," from her 1978 self-titled Germany-only debut, and closes over thirty years later with a trio of tracks drawn from 2009's The List. The latter selections include a cover of Mickey Newbury's "Sweet Memories" previously available only on the Borders Books version of The List.

Included are all eleven of Cash's country chart-toppers, seventeen of her twenty country chart entries, and tracks drawn from all twelve studio albums she's recorded for Ariola, Columbia and Capitol/EMI. There are augumented with bonuses drawn from earlier antholgies, and duets from albums by Vince Gill ("If It Weren't For Him") and Rodney Crowell ("Its Such a Small World"). The bulk of the collection is devoted to Cash's tenure with Columbia, with the second half of disc two stepping through her more recent work for Capitol/EMI. These latter tracks find Cash reinventing herself from a country hit maker to a writer, album auteur and Grammy nominee.

The Essential Rosanne Cash is a wonderful career retrospective. She is at the top of the Singer-Songerwriter Americana genre, in my opinion, and this collection makes it clear why. You will not be disappointed. Excellent selection, excellent music, excellent writing. I love it.

Rosanne Cash ... what's not to like. Great coverage of her work. Unless you have every record Rosanne has done you need this one for your collection. I do wish they had included "One Step over The Line" with John Hiatt from The Circle album, the best duet ever, but I guess you can't have everything.

I've been smitten with Roseanne Cash since I first heard "Right or Wrong" on a sampler album that I purchased while attending college in the early 1980s. At the time, I was basically a rocker, but I enjoyed all kinds of music and wrote album and concert reviews for the campus newspaper.
Like so many others, I was intrigued by her lineage. After all, who hadn't been caught singing a long to a Johnny Cash standard when it wasn't cool?
So, I took a chance and purchased "Seven Year Ache" and got caught in her spell.
I purchased "The Essential Rosanne Cash" for my former roommate as a Christmas present. It took me a few months to move everything out of her house after I left to care for my aging parents. Over that span of time, she'd been listening to my record collection and grew fond of Rosanne Cash.
Actually, she threatened to keep all her CDs, which I wouldn't stand for. As a result, I knew exactly what to get her for Christmas.
